Description

This may or may not be a good idea, but in ticket #12777, it was suggested that we may want to sort Tor Launcher's PT selection dialog based on our expectations of their success/security, rather than alphabetically.

This probably also means creating another pref somehow that specifies this ordering, so we can change it via configuration rather than Tor Launcher update.

For a while now, we have had extensions.torlauncher.default_bridge_recommended_type which causes one PT type to be displayed at the top of the list. The remaining PTs are sorted alphabetically, but with the recent Tor Launcher redesign (Tor Browser 7.5) some are annotated with "works in China", which happens because of preferences that look like torlauncher.bridge_suffix.TRANSPORT. I think that those two things together meet the spirit of this ticket.
